Got Your Back

Got Your Back is an engaging and thought-provoking curriculum from PREP that focuses on helping individuals improve their self-awareness, understanding of others, and their decision-making skills in a variety of relationships and context. 

Essentially, Got Your Back is relationship intelligence for servicemembers in myriad types of relationships like friendships, work relationships, family relationships, dating/partner relationships, parenting & co-parenting relationships, and more. Got Your Back equips servicemembers, especially those aged 18-30, with the tools, skills, and understanding of these relationships so they can be handled appropriately and effectively.

The goals of Got Your Back include helping individuals handle their own stress and negative emotions more effectively, increase constructive communication and de-escalation skills, understand safe and unsafe relationship dynamics, understand who they are and what they’re all about, form healthy expectations about various relationships, explore the connection between decisions and outcomes, and learn how to plug in to communities in helpful and healthy ways.

Further, as the name suggests, Got Your Back is designed not just to help servicemembers identify and create a community of support for themselves; it’s also meant for them to learn how to be of support and safety to others.
